*This won't go on your permanent record, I promise.*


Pro and I have been chatting about the school system and teachers. We've talked about our best teachers--now who's your worst?


Mine= college algebra class-I missed a couple of tests due to illness so the teacher generously allowed me to take the tests in his office at the end of the day. Well, he didn't have test taking on his mind at all.

I left without taking the tests and
still passed the class somehow.... dunno

That was your worst? I'd have loved a teacher to pass me that way!Wink

My worst? One of my geogrpahy profs in college. He was a very nice man and we talked alot outside of class. He even came to several of my concerts just to see me. But, as a teacher, he had failed. He was a year or two away from retirement, and all he cared about was finishing up. So, his classes consisted of the students copying down notes he put up on the overhead, a few movies/tv shows, and three multiple choice tests - all of the above 'recycled' year after year. I could have done that. Pretty sad.

I had a 11th grade English teacher who had no control, was an inconsistent grader, a racist and completely clueless. It was awful

Two come to mind.

My fourth grade teacher. When she got mad she threw erasers. That scared me.

A history teacher in 10th grade (I think). I believe that it was his last year of teaching. He handed out worksheets at the beginning of each class and then sat at his desk as we completed them by going through our book. I don't remember him ever talking to the class. On top of it all, this poor man had some sort of disorder. Some said he was shell-shocked from the Korean conflict Wink. Kids would drop books onto the floor on purpose just to watch him jump. So cruel.

And here I thought you were talking about Keltic! Razz

In high school my French teacher hated me (because I knew French better than her) and my sophomore English teacher, too. They both ganged up and blackballed me for national honor society. I didn't care, but my dad (who also taught at the school) was crushed. I mean, they REALLY hated me. Probably because I was opinionated even back then.

In college I had a professor you didn't want to question ... he was a Gambino. Shocked But I wrote a paper on a subject I knew inside and out, and he told me I was wrong. I took it to the head of the department, who read it, agreed with me, and changed that D to an A+. From that point on that Gambino had it out for me.

That is fubby...

I had a teacher in the 6th grade who would hit us on the top of our heads with a ruler if we got the wrong answer.

I had a lot of headaches that year--I'm glad we moved away! Shocked

His dead serious reply, "I got fo' kids."

I had a music teacher that threw everything in sight at us in 3rd grade...he also broke several chairs and tables in his fits. Sorry Keltic....but to be honest.....I don't remember any of my choral/music teachers being any better. In jr high she'd just slam her piana lid down and scream. High school----whew.....we could opt out of music....which I did.

My sons' music teacher is a different story. She is the best....everyone loves her!!! Especially since she helped win the school $10k for a rendition of the Oscar Mayer song!
